Ben Purdy’s Minecraft in Real Life

13 Mar

Ben Purdy, a creative technologist in Portland Ohio, has created an extremely geeky and fun example of projection mapping!

There is a piezo element (handy for detecting a vibration or a knock) taped to the box which he has connected to an arduino which senses the physical impact and sends serial data to his computer. Processing finds the serial signal and corresponds the projection and interaction!

It’s fantastic!
